crisis, a crisis that has now led to the murder of four americans, whiching the u.s. ambassador, libya and two former navy seals. >> the world needs american leadership, the middle-east needs american leader help and i intend to be a president that provides the leadership that america respects. >> would you consider the current egyptian regime an ally of the united states? >> i don't think we would consider them an ally, but we don't consider them an enemy. >> we don't have the mutual defense treat weegypt. what we do have is a very strong defense relationship. we expect that strong defense relationship to continue. >> we have sent a sense of weakness to them and a apologetic and shades of the carter administration >> i don't understand this, why of all people, barack obama wants to emulate jimmy carter. >> what this is about is american weakness and the president's inability to lead. >> i want you to know that we will bring those who killed our fellow americans to justice. >> this is happening because we have a disaster... as a president. >> greta: right now, you are looking live at c
libya to egypt to tunisia and sudan. terrible news out of afghanistan, two marines killed on a u.s. british coalition base. several others wyned on camp leatherneck, camp bastion. prince harry is there, but he was not injured. it is unclear whether the afghanistan base attack is connected to the raging violence spreading across the region. earlier, afghan protesters burned a president obama effigy. this comes as protests against the united states rage, including in egypt, where it is now four 4:00 a.m. you are looking live at cairo. parts of the city, anti-american rioters are swarming the streets, spewing hate against the united states. we have no idea what tomorrow brings, as the sun begins to rise in a short time. but this day has been extremely violent, with violent protests across the mideast and north africa, durn turning deadly. in egypt, police clashing with stone-throwing rioters outside the embassy. one person was killed. in sudan, the heaviest violence, protesters storming the u.s. embassy and setting the german embasso fire. in tunisia, police firing tear gas and guns
on the u.s. consulate in benghazi the attack that killed our ambassador to libya and three others was directly tied to al-qaeda. a former detainee released from kwan taken mow was suspected to lead the attack. in 2007 he was transferred to libyan custody under the condition that he would be kept in prison forever. but guess what, he was not. and is now it is suspected he led the assault against the u.s. consulate in benghazi. and the white house blind sighted. in fact for an entire week the obama administration has stuck to its story line that this year's 9/11 anniversary attack was a reaction to an anti-muslim youtube video. it was not until today they finally admitted the libya consulate tack was an attack of terrorism. we are joined now by -- >> good evening sir. >> good evening. >> why are we learning this just now? >> i don't think you are learning it just now. we have an administration that was trying to deceive the american people or showed ineptness and incompetence. we know al-qaeda and others were involved in this attack. they operate in and around the area of benghazi.
: this is a fox news alert, four americans murdered in libya, including our u.s. ambassador. is at this time work of al qaeda? did they use protests in egypt and libya to launch a vicious, deadly attack on the anniversary of 9/11? paul ryan slamming the obama administration over its response. >> i disagree with the original statements that the embassy put out, that the administration put out in cairo, sympathizing with the people who are storming the embassy. we should stand up for our values values and free speech rights. i think that statement was wrong. >> greta: see much more of our interview with congressman ryan. is president obama more worried about winning the election or fighting off terrorists? here's what rush limbaugh thinks. >> the obama camp, the campaign, the white house and the media all condemned romney before they condemned the attacks. obama thought it more worthwhile to hit romney for what he was doing than the terrorrives for what they did. >> greta: you hear much more from rush limbaugh, straight ahead. but first, you are looking live at the u.s. embass necairo, egypt. it is
or ambassador in libya. despite, despite it happened on the anniversary of 9/11. where there are pockets of hostility against americans. and yesterday, eight days after the four murders, an administration official finally admitting terrorists are to blame, and today white house press secretary jay carney agreed saying it was self evident the assault was a terrorist attack. but late today, and this does appear to be a switch, during a forum the president once again seemed to blame the youtube video for the violence. >> what is dramatic today is that just 24 hours after jay carney was telling reporters all of us in the white house briefing room yesterday it was too early to classify whether it was terror, whether al-qaeda was involved -- >> what i can tell you is, as i said last week, as our ambassador to the united nations said on sunday and as i said the other day, based on what we know and now, and new at the time, we have no evidence of a preplanned or premeditated attack. this remains under investigation. >> now jay carney aboard air force one told reporters itself evident that this w
and three of his colleagues is in muslim brotherhood, in libya and egypt have seen weakness and they have acted on it. and the administration has done nothing today to correct the impression that the weakness in our policy remains. i really think the analogy to tehran in 1979 before our embassy was taken hostage by the ayatollahs is right on the mark here. we are at a very, very dangerous point. and the president is not demonstrating appropriate american strength. >> you know, there is so much attention, ambassador on what happened in libya, with the murder of our ambassador and three other and it is attention, we are looking at the live pictures at 4:00 a.m. in cairo. there has been some protest in tukneesiasm but another thing that caught my attention, the response from afghan president hamidkarzai, he issued a statement, condeeming the movie and calling it an insult to islam, saying desecration is not part of religious expression and a battleground of the righteous sentiments of 1.5 billion muslims all over the globe. contrav that with how many americans have fought and died trying to
to attack a variety of things, including the consulate in libya. >> they were killed in the course of the terrorist attack on our embassy. we are looking at indications that individuals involved in the attack may have had connections to al-qaeda or al-qaeda affiliates. >> now jay carney aboard air force one, told reporters it's self-evidence it was an terror attack. >> it is self-evident that was a terrorist attack, they were attacked violently there. >> greta: late today, hillary clinton referred to the libya murders as a terrorist attack. so why are they flip-flopping? karl rove joins us. to the question of how does it impact the election. besides the flip-flopping, sloppy at best, who is on first at the white house, i'm curious on the world stage this back and forth slapping has any sort of consequence? >> sure it does. they look at us and say, both friends and allies, what the heck are you thinking. the president was too quick along with the secretary of state and basically blame this all on this video that i suspect very few people protesting in cairo had ever seen and very fe
to the leader in libya. we don't need a meeting in washington just to confer with leaders. >> greta: looks like the president's already having a bad week, and it's only monday. jake tapper joins us. >> good evening, greta. >> greta: how does the white house respond to the question of why secretary of state hillary clinton is meeting with the president of afghanistan and the president of libya and president obama is not, and the president is not meeting with prime minister netanyahu? >> well, their basic answer when asked about this -- we've been asking about it for quite some time -- is the one that you just heard jay carney explain, the idea that the schedules do not align, president obama's in new york monday/tuesday, then going back. prime minister netanyahu will be in new york later in the week. it is true last year when president obama was here for the u.n. general assembly he had at least a dozen meetings with world leaders, and having covered president obama since he took office this is an anomaly, this idea that he would come here and not have meetings with world leaders. there really i
for answer. did the obama administration get any warning about increasing violence in libya before the murders of four americans, including the ambassador. former ambassador john bolt on joins us. nice to see you. >> glass to be here. >> did they have warning? >> this is important information if it's true because it means they failed to heed the warning and put the ambassador and three of his colleagues in a desperate situation. i think this is the white house center unraveling right in front of itself. what they are trying to do is hide behind the fact of an fbi investigation that's pending in libya. which i find ridiculous. the idea that the administration has returned to terrorism as a criminal law matter rather than as a continuing war is extraordinarily disturbing. >> i am even surprised at the discussion. why in the world did anyone need a warning? i've traveled to some of the dangerous places around the country. i haven't been to libya, but i would suspect that place would look pretty dangerous to me. they have a grand new government, lots of factions, you have people fighti
in libya, spontaneous or premeditated? >> probably some of both. i think one of the things that's clear is that it was an opportunity and it was an opportunity taken advantage of by extremist groups to demonstrate against the united states and to do more than just demonstrate against the united states because they are anti-american, but also it was an opportunity to put pressure on some more moderate governments in terms of their spectrum, at which they are not a part. to put pressure on those governments to force them to move more against the republicans united states, and to undermine those governments because they know they are cooperating with the united states because united states is important for them to achieve a better life for their people. the longer this goes, the more we find out about it, the better the chance that at least some of these instances al-qaeda was active as well. i don't know that. my hunch is, when people show up to demonstrations with anti-tank -- with rpgs, this is not a spontaneous uprising, this is some people who were taking advantage of an opportunity t
is between romney's sharp, initial, probably poorly timed reaction to the event in egypt, libya, and subsequently elsewhere which dominated coverage for several days. in the meantime this truly horrible thing happened in libya. the administration couldn't get its story straight about what had happened. it couldn't get its story straight about what had happened. it took a week. i mean, days after that anyone with eyes could see could tell this had an organized attack, in all likelihood a terrorist attack. the administration was putting its people out on the sunday shows with susan rice on four or five sunday to say it was because of the video. this is an astonishing amateur performance. now it's only that we're getting what we should have gotten from the beginning. it's a wonderful difference in the coverage of the two men. >> greta: the domestic coverage, what's going on capitol hill, it's been portrayed, even in the letter they've sent to a number of news organizations complaining about bias, is that the republicans' desire to cut the budget, to start going off a catastrophic f
in libya and it was confirmed within 24 hours. why the charade? >> what happened initially, it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. >> as i said last week, as our ambassador to the united nations said on sunday, as i said the other day, based on what we know and now, and knew at the time, we have no evidence of a preplanned or premeditated attack. >> two sources have told fox that within 24 hours of the attack, all of the evidence that the u.s. intelligence committee had at that time pointed to a terrorist attack, and that it was the work of a specific group related to al-qaeda and its affiliate in that area. >> obama sends his surrogates out to lie about the -- about the cause and the nature of the attacks. obama created a conspiracy theory, and coordinated a campaign of deceit to distract from the truth that affects our national security. >> the thing that's disturbing about this is the naivete of an absolute fundamental ignorance of the -- of warfare. look, this was an attack on its face. >> this is turning into s
in libya. that, according to the libyan security officials. the associated press is now reporting the american was shot to death when gunmen stormed the u.s. consalate and clashed with security forces. and there is more violence against america tonight, this time, in cairo, egypt. thousands of protesters marching on the u.s. embassy. they climbed the embassy walls and ripped down our american flag and burned our flag and replaced our flag at our embassy with a black islamic flag. according to the a.p., both attacks were triggered by a movie produced in the united states that was anti-muslim, made by an anti-muslim extremist. "on the record" is tracking the breaking news stories and will bring you breaking developments throughout the hour. september e day none of us will forget. we will remember that day with you. and why won't president obama meet with netanyahu? but first, an urgent warning. it is about our nation's debt. as if the threat of going over the fiscal cliff isn't bad enough, it now gets worse. if congress doesn't reach a budget deal, moody's will cut its triple-a real
of libya. she's not the president. president obama is. she met with the president of egypt, the president of yemen. she found in her schedule this week for prime minister netanyahu, and at the same time met with foreign ministers, which are her counterparts in the government. she found time in her busy schedule to meet these people. >> well, there's a huge difference. hillary clinton is a serious person. barack obama is an ambitious person. they're very different personalities. hillary clinton actually gets up every day thinking about public policy. barack obama gets up every day thinking about barack obama. i mean, they're very different approaches to life. i think those of us who are his critics need to get over and understand, this who is president. this is a man who in the age of false celebritihood is sort of the perfect president, because he's a false president. he's a guy who doesn't do the president's job. he's had 39% of the briefings on intelligence, the daily briefings. he goes to las vegas while there's an attack on banghazi. >> bill: i give him a pass on that, because you don
